Harvest Music Festival Resumes Ticket Sales Without Glitch

Music fans were finally able to buy tickets for the Harvest Music Festival on Tuesday after a website glitch postponed sales earlier this month.

“Everything is as smooth as a pie. It worked as planned,” said festival music director Brent Starvan.

One of the website issues was related to coding the landing page. It couldn’t be changed in the middle of last week’s sale.

However, members of the local IT community helped the organizers test the site before republishing it on Tuesday.

“Obviously it worked,” Staeban said.

Camp outside for a more rewarding ticket

Rob Agar is a music fan who lives in Fredericton and has been attending local shows for decades.

After having a disappointing experience when trying to buy harvest festival tickets a few weeks ago, he was able to get them today.

“But this is a small festival in a small town. Buying tickets shouldn’t be too difficult,” he said.

For the past few years, Agar said he had to buy tickets for the Harvest Music Festival from Scalper, Ontario.

He says he’s missing out on the excitement that comes from waiting in line to buy tickets for a local show.

“It was a reward for living in the town where the show took place. The locals got the ticket first.”

He knows that many disagree with his proposal to start selling tickets at the local box office. But he still suggested it to the harvest organizer.

He said their reaction was an emphatic “no”.

“I was waiting for a traditional hip ticket at the harbor station. [in Saint John] 24 hours or more. We slept in a sleeping bag and a lawn chair. It was in the early 90’s. It was fun. “

Quick sold out

Stevan said he received calls from dozens of fans who bought the tickets.

The festival’s ultimate pass sold out quickly.

Tickets for the most popular shows of the year, July Talk, Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit, have also skyrocketed.

However, the site is live and music fans will be able to access it to buy tickets for other shows until September.
